Should I be treated with an IPL?

A common system that is misused to treat unwanted hair is an IPL system. IPL is a light source in which its primary use should be for the treatments of photo damage and acne.

IPL’s should never be used for hair removal because patients have a much higher risk of medical complications such as burns, and the risks of hyper pigmentation and/or hypo pigmentation. We offer IPL treatments in our office, however they are used for the treatment of acne, rosacea, and sun damage.
